turkey has a very big, very capable army, but it wants to know if it's got the support from nato. what if assad starts targeting turkey with aircraft? >> that changes everything, nic robertson. thank you so much for joining me. thank you so much for watching. i'm sure wolf will be all over this and of course debate night in denver. "the situation room" begins now. >>> brooke, thanks very much. happening now, we're counting down to tonight's presidential debate. mitt romney's motorcade just pulled up at the debate hall. president obama's expected to arrive in denver any minute as well. we'll be talking with top supporters of each candidate. the former new york city mayor rudy giuliani, he'll join us live this hour. also we'll be hearing from both candidates' wives in special cnn interviews. today, by the way, is the obama's 20th wedding anniversary. so what's it like spending the night with the romneys? i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> 34 days from the presidential election but much more importantly right now at least right now we've reached what may be the mo
'm shepard smith. this is the fox report. it's the bottom of the hour. time for the top of the news and nato reports it has a military plan ready should it need to defend turkey from an attack by syria. that statement is its strongest since syrian forces last week began firing shells across the border into turkey. it also ignites new fears that that vicious civil war in syria could soon turn into a regional conflict. a civil war that activists say left more than 30,000 people dead. syria claims the deadly artillery attack last wednesday was an accident, an outcome of that civil war. but it's important to note that many rebels used turkey as a safe haven to launch attacks against the syrian regime. so there is that. now turkey reports it has moved additional military assets to the border region, including more than two dozen f-16 fighter jets. jennifer griffin on the top story at the bottom of the hour. she's live at the pentagon tonight. it looks like it can be contained? >> well, there has been six days of artillery fire across the border between syria and turkey. at first it looked like it
discussion in u.s. and nato policy on how to pull out. >> i wanted to introduce to you, sir, just last weekend the number of americans killed in afghanistan hit 2,000. is there a point at which the cost just becomes too great and we pull out. are we already there? >> well, i think the american people have backed off this struggle. two thirds of americans don't support it. they're running 6 or 7 billion a month. this year, we have lost a company-sized unit from nato, killed or wounded by afghanistan security forces. so the trust has eroded between nato and the troops. so i think again, we're headed towards the door. does it revert to civil war when we're out, or can the government resort to civil war? >> well, you bring up nato. and the actions have is stopped them from working with the afghans. the mission was to get in there, train the afghans to lead the country in a position that they could take care of it themselves. so what is the mission now for nato? >> well, there is a good argument, the taliban said that hey, the americans are trying to wait out their position, we're trying to
and get the rhetorical backing from its nato allies. but they have continued shelling. this is not all sophisticated military. they're trying to destroy. and we've had reports from syrian opposition activist that's are syrian army casualties as a result of the turkish strikes. >> and a few analysts are suspecting that syria's attack on turkey may have been orchestrated by either the assad regime or the rebels in an attempt to pull turkey into the syrian conflict. do you have any evidence of that? >> reporter: at this point, no. i mean i understand both points of view and the rational towards making them. at this point it is hard to understand why the president would want to further complicate his life by drawing in his key neighborhood backer of the syrian rebel movement and also has the backing of nato. that is hard to understand. yes, there's a lot of logic as to why the rebels would like to see turkey come more in their side militarily and, of course, turkish artillery is doing their job for them now, destroying some syrian military regime targets there. but those theories require e
for this and we also understand that turkish officials are now reaching out to nato to possibly exercise nato's article in which any member of nato that is attacked could respond and it's really just highlighting the sense situation on the turkish/syria border there after this deadly incident. the attack in aleppo you referenced really two different accounts coming out from inside syria. the syrian government, the official line from them, this was a terrorist attack, three suicide car explosions taking place in aleppo targeting a military installation, an officers club that killed 31 people. opposition activists say this was an attack targeting the command headquarters if you will of the military operating in aleppo that killed at least 40 people. over the past several days, we know that syrian rebels have been launching an offensive to try to capture the entire city of aleppo. we also know from pro government sources that the syrian military has deployed additional troops to that fight by some estimates as many as 30,000. so it is indeed a very difficult and bloody day in the city of aleppo
in afghanistan and chechn chechnya. >> rick: a number of afghan soldiers attacking nato soldiers is on the rise but to troops on the ground the green on blue attacks as they are called are much more complicated than a appear in reports. fox news senior military analyst oliver north is at a special operations base near kabul, afghanistan. colonel? >> reporter: there are a lot of these kinds of events that do occur out here, no doubt about it. but, the fact is most of the casualties inflicted are not on nato and u.s. forces, it is on the afghans themselves. we've been to several bases where a small number of special operators are out training the afghan local police, and, security personnel, and here's just some of what we have seen the last several days. today we traveled to a remote out post, three marines were killed in a recent green on blue attack and i asked the element leader about the effects of the incident. >> in the aftermath of some of these other events, have any of them ever come to you and said, we are sorry about what happened? >> yes, sir. i -- we've become one of the village and
threats. on this, there will be no flexibility with vladimir putin. i will call on our nato allies to keep the greatest military alliance in history strong by honoring their commitment to each devote 2% of their gdp to security spending. today only 3 of 28 nato nations meet this benchmark. i will make further reforms to our foreign assistance to create incentives for good governance, for free enterprise and greater trade in the middle east and beyond. i will organize all assistance efforts in the greater middle east under one official with responsibility and accountability to prioritize efforts and produce results. i will rally our friends and allies to match our generosity with theirs and i will make it clear to recipients of our aid that in return for material support they must meet the responsibilities of every decent modern government to respect the rights of all their citizens, including women and minorities. to ensure space for civil society, a free media, political parties and an independent judiciary. and to abide by their international commitments to protect our diplomats and prop

, pakistan, the middle east, turkey, meeting with leaders of nato, i have a very clear idea of what has to be done to keep this country safe. the threats we face -- terrorism, killing terrorists and stopping them before they can do damage to us, making sure that we stop the spread of nuclear weapons. i agree with john kerry from thursday night, the danger of a nuclear weapon getting in the hands of terrorists one of the greatest threats that america faces. but the one thing that we know from this administration is -- and i -- first of all, i don't claim to have the long political resume that vice president cheney has. that's just the truth. and the american people know that and deserve to know it. but what we know from this administration is that a long resume does not equal good judgment. here are the judgments i would make. my first priority would be to keep this country safe. i would find terrorists where they are and stop them and kill them before they do harm to us. we would stop the spread of nuclear weapons. and we would also strengthen this military, which means providing the eq
